The potholes that form following winter storms are true to the saying that everything is bigger in Texas, it would seem.
An NBC 5 viewer was stopped in his tracks by a giant sinkhole in Fort Worth, along the 600 block of South Collard Street. He said he helped pull a car from the hole Wednesday night.
“Found this poor guy and his car being eaten by a sinkhole on Collard St., between Vickery and Lancaster, last night,” Glen Clark wrote in an email to iSee@nbcdfw.com with a picture of the huge hole.
By Thursday morning, the hole was still there but blocked off by traffic cones.
An online map provided by the city shows the hole as a water line break that is a “work not in progress” as of early Thursday morning.
